After releasing the tool, which allows users to install homebrew on their phones, the group was contacted by Microsoft and it appears the two have worked together to create a legal way for users to get the most out of their devices.
Says the group:
As announced on the Windows Phone Dev Podcast, we will soon be launching an approved Windows Phone unlocking service as part of ChevronWP7 Labs. This will be available to developers across all skill levels and all regions.
The service will require a small fee — currently via PayPal — to offset costs but we assure you it will be more affordable than the App Hub. Those who wish to write and immediately publish apps are recommended to sign up to the App Hub instead.
The launch is expected within weeks.
